Whose SQL is it anyway?

A sad tale, told by RoninCyberpunk:

Visiting my site recently would show you a default Apache page. Not something of my choice. And as it appears I might have lost my entire blog let this be a lesson to you all.

Go back up your blog.
Do it for the children.

I'm serious folks, I'm facing possibly losing 4 months of my blog's contents. Don't put yourself through that sort of stress.

Very good advice, and — wait a minute, there are children reading this thing?

I mean, it's a safe bet I'll never be missed if this site goes down, but I can't believe I have underage readers. (Some days, I can't believe I have readers.)

Sometimes I read your blog with my three year old in my lap. Does that count?

I'm alive guys, my blog lives safe and sound - thankfully. But seriously, I was scared I would lose 3 months of my blog content. So if you haven't backed up yet. Go do it NOW.

Hard drives here and at the Slough of Despond are littered with my MT export files — which now, at the 1500-post mark, run about 3 megabytes apiece.

Yeah, it would be nice if they'd fit on a floppy, but then I'd have to shut the hell up once in a while.

Only if you inflict it on other blogs. :)
